The courtyard of the ‘Holy Spirits Masters’ of the Grote Kerk
This picturesque courtyard from 1616 is the oldest of its kind in The Hague.
It was founded by the ‘Holy Spirits Masters’ of the Grote Kerk, who were in charge of caring for the poor. The small houses were built in a square shape and were connected according to a mirror-symmetrical pattern.
The courtyard garden is divided into four large sections surrounded by hedges and pathways with authentic, old paving stones. The showpiece is the Jutte pear tree (a Dutch pear type) planted in 1647.
